When it comes to the art of men's dress shoes, there are few people who take it as seriously as the folks at John Lobb. The heritage brand was founded in 1866 and is basically the gold standard for a nice pair of fancy kicks. No cost is spared when crafting these beauties, from their immaculate use of the highest quality fabrics to the hand-made detail work. They're so beautiful it almost seems a shame to let them touch the ground.

In our latest issue we bring you four new designers making waves in the fashion world. Here's the British label E. Tautz -- bespoke mentality but ready-to-wear finesse.

We all know one: the fashion monster. All they talk about is how Phoebe Philo saved Céline or how s/he's still devestated over Olivier Theyskens being fired from Nina Ricci. They're totally on top of all the hot trends and name drop obscure designer names as if they're A-list celebrities. Well, it's now come to our attention that there is another type of fashion monster on the scene -- the unknowledgable fashionista.

Seriously, how does he do it all? In addition to starring in, producing, writing, directing a bajillion movies, going to school AND teaching, he finds time to host the Oscars and do photo shoots? We have a feeling that if you took that shirt off (yum), and turned him around (yum!) you'd see a little panel where you can access his robotic insides like Vicki from Small Wonder.

While fashion may be our first love, art comes in a close second. And art that benefits a charity, especially one like AIDS Community Research Initiative of America -- a group thoroughly dedicated to the advancement of medical treatments to those suffering with AIDS. The charity has partnered with graffiti artist John "Crash" Matos -- a supporter of ACRIA for some time -- to create an exclusive work to be auctioned (left).

We know we give a lot of love to our fashionistos out here in New York, but this one is for your kiddies out in San Francisco. This Sunday the brotherly duo behind the world travel-approved clothing label Burkman Brothers are making a stop in SF and hosting a trunk show at Welcome Stranger. Get to know the guys behind clothes -- which can best be described as an amazing mix of classic American sportswear with a worldly twist from 2pm to 5pm.

During the Barneys Sample Sale we were thrilled to find a rack with a few pieces of Patrik Ervell's superbly minimalist clothing. Unfortunately, they were all sized extra large. While we left that sale feeling disheartened, it looks like we've been given a reprieve -- and same to anyone in New York. Today, starting at 12pm, you'll get a chance to take on Ervell's simple but elegant menswear (which was nominated for Best New Menswear Designer this year by GQ). Shirts will be $95 from $220 and knits will start at $120 (usually $330).

The french knitwear master Azzedine Alaïa thinks that the pressure to create too many collections is "inhumane" and is probable cause for John Galliano's breakdown.

So, the other day we showed you all the fierceness that is Rihanna in the April issue of Vogue. But of course, people always have to be hatin'. Now the blogosphere is all up in arms and saying that Rihanna swiped Ariel's (she of Disney's The Little Mermaid) trademark look -- specifically that red mane (read: weave for RiRi). While we do admit that there are some similarities, people need to simmer down now!
